You can expect fun activities for you and your canine companion(s) to watch or even try out at the event! Competitions like the Rideau River Dock Dogs will be running all weekend. Think your dog has what it takes? You can enter you and your dog to compete against others, or make a charitable donation for a trail jump, just make sure you bring a towel or two. Don’t want to get soaked? Public Lure Courses will also be available for you and your dog to test run. Disc Dog and Flyball shows will be running as well throughout the weekend to entertain you with a fast-paced running and jumping show.

Looking to be pampered? The exclusive VIPooch Tent offers special access to activities such as The Wunderdogs featuring Lottie the Collie, Mom & Mutt Manicures, pet psychics, therapists, massages and more! Upgrading to the VIPooch pass is $10, but humans aged 16 and under get in for free!


There will even be a tented marketplace for attendees (both human and pup) to shop the latest looks in canine fashions, get top-of-the-line toys and treats, and find other doggy equipment to properly spoil your fur-baby. At the marketplace, you can also meet with some of Ottawa’s amazing animal rescues, or get tips from trainers and specialists.
